Pearson v. Stewart (In re Pearson)

Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court erred in denying debtor's ownership expense on vehicle owned free and clear.
Procedural posture: 
Appellants, chapter 13 debtors, challenged an order of the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Wyoming confirming debtors' third amended plan on the ground that the bankruptcy court had erred in denying confirmation of their prior proposed plan in which they claimed vehicle acquisition allowances for two vehicles. The proper interpretation and application of the "means test" in 11 U.S.C.S. § 707(b)(2)(A)(ii)(I) was at issue.
